HomeJazzHappy Birthday, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson Carl December 18, 2012 Jazz The owner of one of the great nicknames in jazz would have been 95 today. Above are Cleanhead Blues and Old Maid Boogie. The cuts were on a 1986 album by Vinson and Etta James, which is pictured. I’m not sure if these are the versions that were on the album. Vinson died in 1988.
